Michelle Obama makes us weepy for what we’ll miss

5:35 PMNews alert: There is now a fantasy sports app for The Bachelor, which is the greatest news of 2016. Legit.

We’ve said this many times before, but the person we’re going to miss the most is Michelle Obama. Yes, we’re worried about the global balance of power that’s going to come with this change in the White House, and yes, the government is going to be a mess with all sorts of people who have no idea what they’re doing involved. But in the house? At the crib? The first lady was running things, and it was so much fun to see and be a part of. She sat down with Oprah for an interview, and it made me very sad. ABC News has the details on what she said.

One of the most important classes I ever took in my life was called TOK. Theory of Knowledge. In it, we discussed all sorts of quasi-existential questions and applied them to real-life situations, and in high school, that can really affect your worldview. Anyway, we’d ask each other a ton of bizarre stuff and see if we could come up with answers. In said class, I can totally imagine spending a full week discussing the one that FiveThirtyEight’s says came from a toddler: Why do balloons pop?

LeBron James cannot be stopped. His whole life aside from basketball is so beyond productive that it makes me question what I’m doing with my life, to be quite honest. His latest venture is a television program call The Wall, which, if I may, is a complete ripoff of the best game show bit of all time, Plinko, from The Price Is Right. That aside, it looks like it’s going to be awesome. Game shows aren’t easy to make successful and they come and go all the time. ESPN’s Dave McMenamin has the story.

DeMarcus Cousins is a guy with an interesting reputation. He’s known for not exactly being a big fan of authority, and that’s been the case ever since he was in college. Which, of course, is fine, to a point, and is exactly what makes him such a dominant player. That and being tremendously skilled at the game, obviously. But recently, he went way too far with a Sacramento Bee reporter and it was not a good look at all. The Undefeated’s Marc Spears reports that the Kings hit him with a heavy fine, for said actions.

Coffee Break: Here’s one thing you should never do: stand on ice that’s liable to break with freezing cold water underneath. Here’s another thing you shouldn’t do: try to hit a golf ball on said ice. You know why? Because you will fail and will absolutely hit the deck. This video is hilarious.

Snack Time: If you’re like me, you like to listen to the radio. If you’re even more like me, you like to listen to radio specific to your own physical location at the time. Radio Garden is exactly that, globally.

Dessert: This is the best dancing coach of all time. Not even close.
